London Alderman Michael Cliffe has become the 21st Jew to be elected to the present Parliament, it was officially revealed today.

A Laborite, Mr. Cliffe won last Thursday’s by-election in the Shoreditch and Finsbury District of London. His election meetings were constantly heckled by Mosleyites, some of whom were put out of one rally by the police last week.
